After 8 years there will now finally be another Neptune Pink Floyd live show!

Get Your Band Involved

We would also like to invite new members to the NPF community to take part and also those that couldn’t make it last time around so let us know your interest.

With this show we have returned to the grassroots of the very first NPF show back in 2005 by opting for a smaller venue but, this time the show has a theme! To reflect the more intimate settings the show will focus on the early years of Pink Floyd featuring Syd Barrett and also include Syd’s solo works, naturally the evening is called “Crazy Diamond” and is held in tribute to Syd.

To add to the performances there will also be projections, including those all important oil projections to help recreate those heady psychedelic days of 1967.

Get Your Tickets

The venue has a capacity of just 120 and tickets are on sale now at an early bird price of just £5 plus booking fee available here.

David Gilmour’s Beach Hut Must Go Else Be Prosecuted!

There is more trouble for the Gilmour family in Hove, Sussex as the local council are on their case about a beach hut they have erected on their property in which they store their bicycles.

The authorities are not content with putting their son Charlie Gilmour in prison for 16 months and want more blood, this time threatening to prosecute the family if they do not remove the hut!

The council say that the hut at the £3m property is not fitting with the local area which is a “conservation area”. It has been decided that this offending hut must be gone!

David’s wife – mother of jailed Charlie – appealed against the authorities but lost and now has to remove the bright yellow hut that the council have deemed to be an “eyesore”. It would seem if you look at this hut for too long it will cause eye pain that local ophthalmologists would not be able to cope with!

A Brighton and Hove City Council spokeswoman said in a statement: ‘We have had a complaint from a member of the public and are legally obliged to act.

‘As the planning appeal has failed, we have told the owners that the hut must be gone by October 1.

‘If that doesn’t happen, we would have no option but to issue an enforcement notice.

‘Failure to comply with that means either prosecution or the council may remove the hut and charge the householder.’

Perhaps the colourful beach hut was inspired by the one on Brighton Promenade which Polly Tweeted her own picture of with David Gilmour stood in front of with one of their dogs.

It is madness that this beach hut story is currently the most read news story on the BBC News website!!

Personally I think the governent should be abolished and keep out of our lives and gardens!
